Anna Trent, the oldest child in a family of six brothers, finds it difficult to overcome her feelings of inadequacy

Publishers Description
In The Measure of a Heart, Anna Trent is troubled by feelings of guilt and inadequacy. While everyone says she is a woman of worth, she struggles to see that in herself. Drums of Change turn Running Fawn's life upside down. Not only is her Blackfoot tribe forced to the Reserve, but she is sent to the Mission Boarding School, where she is confused not only by the white people's culture, but also their God. Responding to an advertisement, Kathleen O'Malley crosses the ocean to America to become A Bride for Donnigan. Meanwhile, Donnigan waits for her arrival with both anticipation and uncertainty.

The Measure of a Heart Review  Oct 31, 2005
Many times in life, one must face challenges through feelings of doubt and inadaquacy. Anna, a young and innocent farm girl, shares such feelings of never being enough. These emotions are aroused as Austin Barker, a passionate pastor fresh out of seminary, asks her to marry him. Anna is overwhelmed by the offer and feels she would only hinder the ministry as a pastor's wife. Once Anna agrees, she continues to struggle as the trials of ministry cause her to see herself as a failure. However, outside her feelings of limitation, Anna is known for her compassion and selfless love. Everyone else knows her worth, but Anna.
Janette Oke, author of the novel, has written many books displaying women who have overcome such trials as Anna has. Mrs. Oke was born into a farming family herself in the Canadian prarie. She is active in her local church and serves in various ministries.
I personally was able to relate to circumstances throughout the novel. I have experienced both the triumphs and hardships of ministry in being a pastor's daughter. There is a standard that one in ministry wishes to withhold, however, I never have felt burdened with failure to the degree as Anna had. Her story revealed the reality of faith on the field. She serves as an inspiration to me as she grows in the Lord through her struggles. This novel causes one to measure their own heart and grow as a believer.
Inspirational  Oct 4, 2004
The Measure Of A Heart, by Janette Oke is truly inspirational. She uses the character Anna Trent as an example to all Christians. She is introduced in the beginning of the book as a young, intelligent, six-teen year old farm girl. Throughout the book she grows into a wonderful Christian women, whom most readers would respect after finishing. Anna is innocent and selfless. When she decides to accept the role of being a minister's wife by marrying Austin Baker, she feels tremendously inadequate. Anna has a constant battle by questioning her good deeds, decisions, motherhood, and weather or not she does the title of minister's wife justice. She does the title more than justice! In fact, I wish that everyone could handle situations and treat others as she does. When conflicts arise not only does Anna have to deal with those circumstances, but also a second struggle follows, herself. She is extremely insecure. It is not until later in the book that she finally discovers that all her efforts are significant. I would highly recommend this book, because it offers a new perspective on life. Anna's selflessness makes the reader consider their priorities. Her first and foremost desire is to please God by doing her job sufficiently. I agree with Anna's desire, and this is probably the reason why I loved this book so much! Janette Oke is a talented author. I like the ideas and thoughts that she expresses through the context. After reading The Measure Of A Heart, I am excited to read more of her work!
Janette Oke...  Aug 8, 2002
Janette Oke in this book is wonderful. She places infront of me the examples I need to know. All of us need to know. most people in this world today would not be such wonderful examples. I do not know of many myself. Showing me the way to see the positive in the negative, I find that this is a very special book, indeed.
I thought this book was pretty sad.....  Apr 14, 2002
....and the reason I thought it was pretty sad is that I can see why the poor girl is so self-conscious and feels so inferior. Her life is one continuous struggle in which she receives practically no assistance from anyone. Her husband is actually the worst of everybody for neglecting her! I say that because he never seems to be around for her, never seems to notice her feelings, and the only way she overcomes her inferiority (at the very end of the book) is by reading- reading, mind you, because he scarcely talks to her- one of his sermons. Without much support from Austin, Anna has to do everything for herself. They are extremely poor and out in the middle of nowhere, so you will see how, out of necessity, Anna invents the down jacket and padded diapers, and patches Austin's shirts with flour sacks. The missionary society who is supposed to help the couple is also pretty dumb, because they send Anna a barrelful of fancy summer clothes in winter. These just a couple examples of the incompetency of everybody around Anna. I think the problem is that Janette Oke overworks the fact that the missionaries are poor, until Anna's life seems absurd. I felt sorry for Anna and annoyed at Austin the whole time for not doing anything to help her out, so I don't consider this a very uplifting book. I think the only value in it is that people who are sad can read it and then feel better about their own woes because Anna has everything so much harder.
